Helming her first directorial and doing a terrific job while she is at it, Kangana Ranaut proved her mettle with Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi. The film hit the silver screens today and the audience as well as critics have applauded Kangana for essaying the role of Jhansi ki Rani fiercely. Along with Kangana, Manikarnika also marks the Bollywood debut of Ankita Lokhande as Jhalkaribai. Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub, Atul Kulkarni, Jisshu Sengupta, Richard Keep, Suresh Oberoi and Danny Denzongpa form the rest of the cast. 

The film overcame many hurdles to see the light of this day. Manikarnika released across 3,700 screens worldwide. However, in India, Kangana’s magnum opus has got 3,000 screens including Hindi, Tamil and Telegu regions. The movie is also clashing with Nawazzudin Siddiqui’s Thackeray. While speaking about how the movie has been performing at the box office on its first day, trade analyst Girish Johar said, "The occupancy from what I have seen is around the mark of 30 per cent. This is above average and the film will pick up pace in the evening as people are liking it." 

He added, "From what I have heard so far, the reviews are pretty good. The reviews are ranging from good to above average." 

Johar also spoke about Kangana's directorial stint, he said, "Everyone has applauded Kangana Ranaut. It is a brave move for Kangana to release a film on this mammoth scale despite all the hurdles she had to face in terms of cast being changed and director leaving, so that is a huge responsibility. So, I would really want to pat her back for bringing out a film which everyone is enjoying."
